It wouldn't be New Years for me without hearing the bit below. It's not really music (though it uses Auld Lang Syne in the background), but I thought I'd use it anyway. The man speaking is Harry Harrison, a radio DJ I grew up hearing daily. He worked as a DJ from 1953 through 2005, most famously on WMCA, WABC, and WCBSFM. He not only talked about the music, but also shared personal stories and became a friendly voice for many people. The clip below was played every year around Christmas and New Year's Day after being recorded in 1965. You can read the text here, but I'd recommend listening when you have a chance. It's well wishes and hopes for everyone listening. It's a small tradition for me that I hope all of you can enjoy.
